    Since 2007, iOS mail remains primarily the same.

    Way too many clicks to get to the root inbox.
    When are they ever going to smarten up on this.

    Back, back, back. Main inbox.

    :confused:

    Wonder if being able to swipe back in iOS 7 (instead of clicking) is their "answer"?

    Maybe they should implement the now-commonly implemented sidebar in many apps like Facebook?

    I'm happy with the swipe back. much easier to slide your finger from the edge of the screen then reach for the top left corner to go back.

    Same here. Stopped using the native Mail app as soon as Sparrow came out. And the only reason I jailbroke was to get push.

    It takes me one press to go from a single message to All Inboxes, two if its in a threaded conversation.

    To be fair, I've been waiting for them to put the OSX Junk filter on iOS for years.

    Despite how prevalent the sidebar is, Apple has never used it in any of their apps. I get the feeling that it does not fit into their design ideology.

    I like the sidebar, however I do find it frustrating when half my apps use it and half don't. I'm not suggesting every app should be the same, but some consistency in navigation would be valuable. In one app a swipe brings up the sidebar, in the other it goes back, and in others it does nothing and everything must be tapped. I constantly have to consider which app I'm in and remember how it behaves.

    But Facebook is still just a NavController at heart so will let you get 5-6 levels deep and still make you navigate back to the top before it will show sidebar.

    Try going into an item, then going to notifications and going to a couple of different items.

    I really want to see the reading list concept from safari brought to mail. when I pull at the end of my email, it should go to next/previous message
